Hank Bonecutter

When Hemlock Semi-Conductor company decided to invest over two billion dollars in Clarksville/Montgomery County to build a new facility, the President and CEO of the Economic Development Council, James Chavez, was a major player.  He led a team of recruiters and staff to land the single most important economic partner this community has ever had.  Mayor Carolyn Bowers, though, feels Chavez needs to get back to work, “not rest on your laurels” and run the Economic Development Council “as it was originally created.”

Tension in recent weeks has been running high as rumor and unfounded claims about behavior have dominated the discussion. Mayor Bowers was interviewed on Wjzm’s “Clarksville in Review” and talked at length about the situation.

Christmas Tree Fire Hazards

 

Water That Tree!

United States Fire Administration (USFA)

Emmitsburg, MD – What’s a holiday party or even the traditional Christmas morning scene itself without a beautifully decorated tree? If your household, as those of more than 33 million other American homes, includes a natural tree in its festivities, take to heart the sales person’s suggestion—”Keep the tree watered.” That’s good advice and not just to create a fragrant indoor winter wonderland atmosphere.

Christmas trees account for 240 fires annually, resulting in 13 deaths and more than $16.7 million in property damage.1 Typically shorts in electrical lights or open flames from candles, lighters or matches start tree fires. Well-watered trees are not a problem. Dry and neglected trees can be.

NASA Developing Comet Harpoon for Sample Return

 

Written by Bill Steigerwald and Nancy Neal-Jones
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – The best way to grab a sample of a rotating comet that is racing through the inner solar system at up to 150,000 miles per hour while spewing chunks of ice, rock and dust may be to avoid the risky business of landing on it. Instead, researchers want to send a spacecraft to rendezvous with a comet, then fire a harpoon to rapidly acquire samples from specific locations with surgical precision while hovering above the target.

Using this “standoff” technique would allow samples to be collected even from areas that are much too rugged or dangerous to permit the landing and safe operation of a spacecraft.
